SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/03- “O LORD, You Alone Are My LORD GOD Almighty, And Perfect In All You Do!” (Isaiah 25:1)
Premise Question: Why should we praise The LORD GOD Almighty?
“O LORD, I will honor and praise your name, for you are my God. You do such wonderful things! You planned them long ago, and now you have accomplished them.” (Isaiah 25:1 NLT)
Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein; You, O LORD, The One True GOD, are my LORD GOD Almighty! I, Your humble and grateful servant, choose to extol You, with exuberant and extravagant joyful praise and worship. I do this, by lifting my voice and heart up in exaltation of Your Holy Name, which is above every name, to the highest place of honor and recognition. For You, O LORD, are always completely faithful in performing, with extraordinarily perfect precision, every gloriously incredible and wonderful thing that You do, have done and will yet do. All this, You have done, from before the very beginning of time, being divinely purposed, planned and determined, as to what is to happen, according to Your desired will and most excellent supreme design, which has already been eternally established, even before the foundations of the world. (Isaiah 25:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We, the people of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, being fully accepted, with all rights and privileges therein, as sealed members, in excellent standing, of The Company of The Redeemed, should, without intrepidness, shame or reserve, declare and proclaim to everyone everywhere, that He, The LORD GOD Almighty, is The One True God, Whom we love, honor and serve. And, that we should also be telling everyone everywhere, of His glorious gracious acts, as well as, telling them, one and all, of His great unfailing love and unmatched wonderful deeds.

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/27- “Papa God’s Spirit Lives Inside Us!”
(1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
Premise Question: Having this indisputable knowledge of our miraculous transformation, of knowing that The Spirit of The Most High lives and dwells inside all of us who’ve called upon The Name of The LORD, because of the revealed truth in Papa God’s Holy Writ—The Scriptures; why does it seem and appear, at times, that some of us, in The Company of The Redeemed, act and comport ourselves as if we are completely unaware of and totally oblivious too, this established, verifiable fact, and most glorious obvious truth?
“Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.”
(1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NLT)
Are you still yet unaware, of the miraculous transformation that has occurred inside your body; that of you becoming the very dwelling place of The Spirit of The Most High, who is The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, from Whom you have obtained this marvelous miracle of His very presence taking up residence inside of you? Therefore, you are no longer on your own, hopelessly lost, destitute and without a promising future, but you have been purchased, at a great cost to Papa God Himself; for He has redeemed you, to become His very own, by and through the sacrifice of The Lamb of God, His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ. Now, since this is the case, (reality) the more prudent way, with the greatest benefits and blessings, is to always choose to give due reverence and proper respect, to The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, by honoring Him in your bodies. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Many of us, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, perhaps, really need to have a reminder wake up call, to the actual reality of, that it is the actual Spirit of The Living God, The Holy Spirit of The Most High, that has now taken up residence, within the within, of the innermost part of every one of us who have called upon The Name of The LORD for personal salvation. In essence, each of our bodies have now become a holy temple and the very dwelling place of Papa God’s Spirit!
So, once we’ve truly come to the full realization of this truth, which is the absolutely incredible, being the most miraculous and marvelous transformation that could ever take place in any person’s life, we should make sure to always honor the presence of The LORD’s Spirit living and dwelling inside of us; by keeping our bodies clean and pure, by staying away from partaking of or participating in, anything that would sully or defile our body, which is the very temple of Papa God’s Spirit.
Nor should we ever diminish our testimony or reputation, by giving our bodies over to sinful practices and behaviors, and thereby, end up grieving and hurting Papa God’s Spirit and His reputation and testimony among humankind.
None of us should ever try to manage, escape or circumvent the knowledge of this wonderful truth! What we should do, though, is avoid, no matter the cost, from ever giving in to our base nature and acting as if we are ignorant and unaware of the tremendous high cost that was expended on our behalf, by Papa God!
Therefore, recognize who you are and who it is that is living inside of you, and then, honor Him always, in and with your body, at all times, on all occasions and in every situation and circumstance you may encounter or go through in this life!
Please remember, the repercussions from not recognizing and honoring this truth and The LORD, will never be worth it, very pleasant, nor will it ever produce any good thing! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/06- “Live Your Life With Eternity In View!” (Colossians 3:1-2)
Premise Question: So, now that we, as sealed members of The Company of The Redeemed, have a completely new lease and perspective on life, along with the promised and positively blessed prospects for our guaranteed, absolutely certain, joy filled future of a perfect and full of peace everlasting life; what are we doing with this amazing truth, we know as, the Good News?
“Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.” (Colossians 3:1-2 NLT)
Since the time of the resurrection of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ, you too have now been raised to a new life with Christ; being removed out of darkness and despair, into His glorious light and pure joy, with the ultimate result of being rescued from eternal death into eternal life. Therefore, you ought to now choose to set your earthly affections and attentions, your intentions, desires and ambitions, on heavenly things; things that are immutable and eternal, where Jesus Christ is ruling and reigning in His place of honor, right beside His Father, our Papa God—The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. You should now, therefore, fix your thoughts, your goals, aspirations and dreams, with a laser focus, on being fully consumed with Heavenly things, that have intrinsic value, not earthly things, which are temporal and filled with the cares of this life, your daily needs, challenges and worries alike. Act like you’re living life with eternity in view; don’t allow the here and now to be the dominating focal point of your life! (Colossians 3:1-2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Once we’ve allowed the seismic shift, of the completely transformative change, that redemption and salvation has upon our lives, to take full effect, then we must take a different approach; having a brand new perspective and positive outlook on our present life, with a hopeful and joyful expectation for our future everlasting life.
In our daily life, we need to practice being positive, thankful, appreciative, always choosing to express sincere gratitude, grace and mercy towards others. We should accept, as truth, that no matter what we may experience or have to endure, during our time spent here on earth, we can relax, be comforted, encouraged and refreshed with, “and this too shall pass” and therefore, can not begin to be compared to our joy filled and glorious, hope filled future.
We ought to seriously take the long view of things and not always, because of the pressures of life, just focus on the short term and present conditions of our lives. Taking the long view means that we will deliberately choose to focus on the things of Heaven, things that have intrinsic value and are eternal, as they shall never diminish or pass away; rather, than being consumed and overwhelmed by the immediate and the temporal, which do not have any intrinsic or eternal value, but shall absolutely one day pass away and be no more.
Just a quick word of exhortation: don’t ever deny, reject, mock or minimize the miraculous in your life! Always choose to live your life with eternity in your sights! Take the long view, dismiss the short sighted view, and choose to share the truth of the Good News with everyone! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/24- “Humility And Awe!” (Proverbs 22:4)
Premise Question: What’s the real benefit, and intrinsic value, that’s realized by the person who is genuinely humble, with an authentic and healthy reverential awe for The LORD?
True humility and fear of the LORD lead to riches, honor, and long life. (Proverbs 22:4 NLT)
Genuine humility, emanating from a person’s heart that is meek, contrite and shows due reverential awe and respect towards Papa God, The LORD of all; ushers in, with due diligence, its full recompense of a bountiful reward, for it compensates that person, enriching them with an over abundance of intrinsic value, along with, benefits of wealth, health and great worth, and it carries with it, the distinct honor of being highly favored and esteemed, as well as, being blessed with an extended duration of existence, while here on earth, that’s way beyond the normal life expectancy. (Proverbs 22:4 PDCP)
Bottom Line: When we, as humankind, deliberately and with diligence, walk in humility before others and have and show proper reverential awe that’s due Papa God, The LORD of all, then and only then, are we on the right path in this life. And, as a direct result, will be shown the way to go, in order to receive the real benefits and rewards and also fully realize the intrinsic value and divine destiny purposed for our lives. The LORD Himself will go before us, as our guiding Shepherd, to make sure this happens and to fulfill His Word.
When the path of humility is taken, it will lead to an enriched life, one that will extend and flourish beyond this life here on earth, to being able to experience eternal life, with rewards beyond the imagination heaped upon them; for no eye has seen nor mind comprehended all that will happen and is being made ready and prepared for those who choose the path of humility and reverential awe towards The LORD.
But, if one chooses not to take the path of humility, they will surely have chosen most foolishly, and will thus, ultimately be led down the pathway that leads to abject humiliation, dishonor, poverty, and even perhaps a shortened life, and in the end, damnation, destruction and eternal death.
Let us each choose the path of humility and reverential awe, and in effect, choose life—eternal life, that’s filled with honor, eternal and intrinsic value, precious treasure and great rewards. Blessings…
